Sorry if I am asking a question that is obvious, but am I able to drive a vehicle or rent a vehicle in the Philippines on an Australian or International Licence? I just realised I had forgot to even think about that one...

Thanks in advance.

You can drive up to 90 days on a foreign drivers license, no need for an international drivers license but it never hurts to have more rather than less if you want to.

As for renting, you should be able to rent from the large companies, I suggest you contact your car insurance company in your country to see what they cover you for, mine covers me for rentals, also check your credit cards, they too may cover insurance, insurance on rentals anywhere can cost a bunch, why spend it if you do not need it...

Enjoy your trip and welcome to the forum.
